  1. We just cruised in September, and Luminae was wonderful. Both food and service were excellent. We were on the Summit, I hope your experience on the Eclipse is wonderful too.
  2. I'm enjoying your review of the sunny Greek Islands on what is a rainy, gloomy 48 degree Maine Sunday. Your review and your wonderful pictures are certainly a bright spot on this typical Autumn New England day. Thanks guys for sharing. Lorrie
  3. We were on the Summit last week. There was TV, but we didn't find any free movies on the TV. We paid 14.99 to rent a movie one night when we stayed in, DH's knees were bothering him. Maybe there were free movies, and we didn't find them, but I doubt it. We weren't thrilled to pay $15 for a movie, but that's what we chose to do. As for outdoor movies, they played Footloose two nights in a row up there.
  4. It seemed to be the case on the Summit when we cruised 9/1 to 9/8. Food Network, HGTV, the occasional odd episode of a TV show like Vikings, but any TV show episodes were one offs, and repeats of the same episodes of Modern Family, Suits, and Pretty Little Liars. We rented one On Demand Movie, but even that selection of movies was pretty slim. We don't cruise to watch TV, but it's nice to have something to watch after retiring to the cabin. So no free movies that we could find on the in cabin TV. We weren't thrilled with the in room entertainment, or the buffet since they changed it. Not much variety or quality in the buffet anymore, and lots of empty space. If we travel with X again, I think it will be on a different ship.
  5. They look like they were designed for Morticia Addams. Or Alice in Wonderland, it could go either way there.
  6. I would love to bring my regular pillow from home, but I don't know how people manage to carry pillows along with everything else.
  7. We are sailing on the Summit in a week. The menus have been up on the app for a while, long enough for there to have been a change to the menus since they were originally posted. The newest updated menus show lobster in both the MDR and Luminae on night six. The previous menus had no lobster at all. I'm hoping the actual menus on our cruise follow the updated menus and not the lobsterless ones I originally saw. DH and I had a crawfish boil meal at Deanies in New Orleans. Really different than lobster, and not like shrimp, which I thought it would be like. It was though quite spicy and delicious. Probably have to cruise out of New Orleans to get that on a cruise, if at all. New Orleans food is amazing.
  8. What a beautiful girl. I am sorry for your loss.
  9. Tami, I am sure anything you choose to wear to the MDR on a "regular" night should be fine. From your pictures it's easy to see you have a nice sense of style and fashion, not that you had to prove that to me or anyone else. Also distressed jeans have been around for quite a while now. To me the designer type of distressed jeans is meant to be prettier than an old pair of Levis that has holes from working around the house/yard. And distressed jeans have been around for a while now. With a nice top and some cute shoes or sandals I think you will be fine. BTW DH and I dress up for the first Evening Chic night, and on the 2nd chic night we hang out in our cabin with dinner delivery from MDR, or we do the buffet. We've lost our excitement over dressing up by the second night, but the first night dressing up is fun for pictures. Regular nights I wear a work-worthy dress, or black pants and a nice top, DH does a polo or short sleeve button down shirt and khakis/chinos.

    LLP Q&A

    I saw that too Mynki. But when I clicked on the thread it was about another line called Lindblad or something like that. No Celebrity threads. And no Q/A threads, just weird.
  11. Considering what they are asking for those suites, it would be almost a years salary times two for us to travel at that level. Lovely suites for sure, especially that wall of windows in the iconic suite - what a view! But I don't think we will be in one anytime soon.
  12. Try clearing your browser history. Lately I've been getting an error message that says they have my info and to try again later. Instead I clear my browser history, and it works like a charm. DH says it's an issue with the sites cookies. Or my pc's cookies. Forgive me, IT people. I forget where the cookies are lol
  13. My favorite is the tres leches cake at Café al Bacio. It's sweet, creamy, fluffy, and delicious. The crème brulee is also excellent. And I agree that the little "donuts" in Tuscan grill are good, as is the pistachio creme brulee. The specialty dessert of the day (pie or cupcakes come to mind) in the OV Buffet is usually good too. Honestly though by day 4 or 5 I'm looking for the smallest serving of dessert to share with DH once a day, if that. There's a lot of every kind of food. It get to be a bit much about halfway through the week! lol
  14. I wonder if the free drinks in the casino appear when action is light in the casino, to draw people in. Though there doesn't seem to be any discernable factor that makes any cruise line consistent...
  15. I don't think Luminae's "signature" burger is lamb. They have a separate lamb burger for one of the lunch menus.
  16. Exactly, everyone knows a toaster oven would be the most useful.
  17. No matter the circumstances, villainizing that poor man is so wrong. I can't even begin to imagine the emotional pain the grandfather and family are going through over the loss of their baby.
  18. IMO the best place to get t shirts in Bermuda is a shop called Flying Colours in Hamilton. It is located on Queen St, just up from the ferry terminal on the left side of the street. The shirts are well made and mostly less than $20 each. There might be a few more expensive shirts too. They have all sizes, DH is a big and tall guy, and we have no problem finding 4x shirts for him. They have souvenirs other than t shirts as well. It's a nice store.
  19. And it looks like there is no shortage of Invicta watches in the $50 to $80 dollar range on Amazon. No need to wait for a cruise to get an Invicta "bargain."
  20. If you like creamy treats, there is a cake I had in Café Al Bacio that is so good. It's their Tres Leches cake. It is creamy, sweet but not sickeningly so, covered in a fluffy soft meringue like frosting. I hope they still make it, looking forward to having it with a nice latte in September.
  21. We were in a Sky Suite last time, and we got a bottle of Celebrity sparkling wine. No VC. It's good to know it's available by the glass for a small upcharge with our drink package though.
  22. I haven't been able to log in to the Celebrity site for days now. When logging in I get a message at the bottom of the screen saying they have my information, and to try to login later. No access to my account for our upcoming 9/1 cruise on the Summit since last Friday.
  23. We're on the same cruise and I noticed that too on the app. I'm looking at it now and it lists an "All Aboard" time of 5:30 for day 4, the day we arrive in Bermuda. Which must be a mistake since we are in Bermuda and free to come and go from the ship until we leave Bermuda on Friday, day six. The only set time to be back onboard is when we leave Bermuda. I think it's back onboard by 3:30 for a 4:30 sailaway from Bermuda.
  24. Good for you! I love happy surprises. Enjoy.
  25. In the Café Al Bacio area they have a desserts case. The fancy coffees have a charge, but the food offered is complimentary. My husband liked the Carrot Cake, and I really liked the Tres Leches cake they served. The carrot cake was traditional with cream cheese frosting. The Tres Leches cake was fluffy with soft cake and meringue, it was so good. So they offer a changing selection of cakes, tarts, mousses, and cookies. I didn't see macarons there, don't know if they offer those at all. In general the sweets offered there are very good.
